The expansion of Al Ansab STP is an attempt to keep up with the increasing demands of wastewater services, a result of the remarkable urbanisation in Muscat.
Speaking at the project launching ceremony at Crown Plaza, Madinat Al Irfan, Eng Khalid bin Hassan al Lawati, acting projects general manager at Haya Water, announced that the plant is equipped with the state-of-the-art technology which is the membrane reactors technology known as MBR.
The plant is considered to be one of the largest in the world that operates using this technology.
Lawati added that the capacity of Al Ansab STP after phase II completion reaches 125,000 cubic meters per day. He affirmed that the actual operation of the STP has already started and its quality is very high.
He also assured that the plant’s capacity is sufficient to absorb the wastewater that comes through the connected networks to the STP or through the yellow tankers, which no longer have to wait to offload the wastewater.
Al Ansab STP, which was built in 2010, accommodated 57,300 cubic meters per day and the capacity of this plant will increase to 140,000 cubic meters per day after the completion of phase III by end of 2022.
